I go hiking a lot. The last years it`s mostly been for a day or two, so I`ve usually brought fresh food, but I`m about to start doing it more and longer trips again.

I`m the army we used to have these packs that we just added water to and let sit for a few minutes. They`ve been quite popular with hikers for some years noe, too.

Problem is offcourse, that they`re not exactly bloodtype specific. I have therefore decided to try and make my own.

What I need is separate, preferably organic, individual ingredients that I can mix and match to my own liking.

Has anyone tried this before? Any idea where I can order such things?

You can buy yourself a dehydrator and make your own dried foods.

After all the Katrinas, tsunamis, politics, and other things in the world, I decided that if there was an emergency, I wanted to Eat Right 4 My Type.  I really had to comb the ingredient lists for freeze-dried type foods because most have ingredients I couldn't eat.  I did find a pure beef at mountainhouse.com.  I think I also bought pure green beans from them too.  I found a few foods at nitro-pak.com.  Then I dehydrated some fruits and vegetables and vacuum-packed them in FoodSaver bags and packed them away in paint pail buckets.  I made jerkey and did the same.  Finally, since I found that most Beech-Nut babyfood had no avoids  (pure beef, veal, chicken and turkey for me).  This goes a little beyond what you are looking for, but it's what I did.  Most of my stuff is stashed away - it gave me a comfort zone.

I can not recall the company, but there is an existing company brand that I have seen at natural food stores that make dried peas, bananas, tomatoes, mixed vegetables, blueberries, et al.

Unfortunately, I do not believe the products are organic.

It would be a great investment to purchase a dehydrator and make your own endless variations of dried foods.

Those are so expensive, too! I'd use the money you would save on buying them and put it toward a dehydrator (but I've already said that).

I found a brand new dehydrator at the thrift store for 10 bucks! I dried bananas and freshly shredded coconut. It did an excellent job. I'd like to try making my own vegetable soup base of powdered dehydrated vegetables - anyone had any luck with this? Recipes?

Dehydrating can be addictive!


It is so pleasant to explore nature & oneself at the same time, doing violence neither to her nor to one's own spirit, but bringing both into balance in gentle, mutual interaction.

You could probably dehydrate diced onions, carrots, celery, garlic as a soup base for a foundation for making soups/stews.

An old friend of mine would make bean soups and dehydrate them for backpacking trips.

I guess I can just combine dried and freeze dried and put them in vacum bags.

If I let them sit in water in the pan for ten minutes before I start heating it, I should avoid wasting any fuel.
